Teach English In China Ltd

Here at Teach English In China Ltd, we all have two things in common; a passion for discovering China's rich culture and a desire to help others experience it for themselves. Since 2005, we have been doing just that, organising teaching placements for over 1,000 people.

We believe living and working in China is a valuable experience that everyone should get the chance to do for a period of time that best suits them. That's why we have teamed up with schools and organisations across China to provide a variety of programme options, giving you the chance to discover this fascinating country through the eyes of a local without needing teaching experience or knowledge of Mandarin.

As a team of ex-foreign teachers, we have first-hand knowledge of living and working in China, which we use to deliver a high-quality service to candidates. We offer training, help with lesson planning and the chance to meet other participants before you go to China. Most of our teachers have no prior teaching experience, and our programmes are designed to ensure they leave feeling confident, prepared and supported.

We attach great importance to supporting our teachers before, during and after their placements and giving them the opportunity to develop their skills and career beyond the placement.

Training and support

We offer all our candidates a training day in London, where you get teacher training from teachers on our programme. These days are also an opportunity to meet the other people you will be working with in China, so you start your adventure together with a group of people who are in the same boat. We will give you access to detailed training materials, and a guide to teaching in China that covers topics like: how to approach your first lesson, engaging students, behaviour management and how to integrate westerns and Chinese teaching styles.
We help you find a suitable placement, arrange a visa and stay in contact with you during your placement, and we offer in-country support.

Travel Opportunities

Working in a Chinese school gives teachers plenty of opportunities to travel both in China and further afield. Our teachers' visas allow them to come and go from China like the locals and the generous salaries offered by schools enable them to put money aside for exciting adventures. Each year a large percentage of our teachers travel to exciting locations across China and Asia, including Zhangjiajie, Shangri-La, Guilin, Mongolia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar!

Career progression

Teaching in China is a valuable experience that opens up a range of possibilities and often leads people down interesting career paths. A large percentage of our alumni have gone on to do a second, third and even fourth year in China, either teaching or in a different industry. Others have returned to their home countries to begin exciting careers in finance, the public sector and management roles, to name a few.

We believe that our teachers are the foundation of our success and we attach great importance to providing each and every one of them, both past and present, the opportunity to expand their skill set, boost their CV and earn a bit of extra money by taking on part-time roles in writing and vlogging. We place a high value on helping our teachers before, during and after their placements and use our large and knowledgeable alumni community to help our teachers to network, find new opportunities and keep in touch with all things China.
